An Iowa man is jailed in Nebraska after a routine traffic stop on Wednesday led to the discovery of a gift-wrapped shipment of marijuana.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 36-year-old Shamall Fleming, of Council Bluffs, was arrested for suspicion of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and suspicion of driving on a suspended license, after a trooper stopped Fleming’s car on Interstate 80, near Kearney, Nebraska.
Officials say during a search of the car, the trooper caught of whiff of marijuana coming from three gift-wrapped packages in the trunk.
The packages contained 25 bundles of pot, that weighed nearly 83 pounds. Fleming was taken to the Buffalo County, Nebraska, jail, where he was being held without bond.
